Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing – April 11, 2012

Song: It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing Time
It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing Time
It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing Time
We’re going to sing a song
And it won’t take long
It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing Thing Time

Nursery Rhyme: Row Row Row Your Boat x2

Fingerplay: This is Big Big Big x2
This is big, big, big
This is small, small, small
This is short, short, short
This is tall, tall, tall
This is fast, fast, fast
This is slow, slow, slow
This is yes, yes, yes
This is no, no, no

Song: Cuckoo
Tick-tock, tick-tock
I’m a little cuckoo clock
Tick-tock, tick-tock
It’s one o’clock
Cuckoo!
**we kept on going until we got to 6 o’clock, each verse getting progressively faster**
